The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
*Bravo to Lori Lutz, Jamestown resident who is planning to make Christmas a little brighter for local nursing home residents. Lutz launched the Holiday Hearts for Homes effort in memory of her late father. She’s been purchasing gifts for Ave Maria Village residents and is hoping others will contribute. Residents of Eventide at Hi-Acres will receive any gifts that exceed what is needed for Ave Maria residents. People interested in helping can purchase gifts such as slippers, puzzles, books, crossword puzzle books or other items and leave them at a drop-off box at Top Designers in the Buffalo Mall.
*Bravo to Katie Conlon, Jamestown native who earned All-American honors at the NCAA national championships last month in Louisville, Ky. The top 40 runners receive the honor and Conlon placed 39th out of the 40. She was also credited with helping her team, the University of Oregon Ducks, win its first national title since 1987.
*Bravo to siblings John and Heather McDougall, who created the bogobrush with the idea to help others. The toothbrush, made with bamboo to be an environmentally friendly product, is sold with the “buy one, give one,” concept. For each toothbrush sold, the Jamestown natives are donating one to another person in need of help with dental care.
*Bravo to those residents and businesses that have decorated their exteriors for the holiday season, the Rotary Club for placing Christmas lights on the trees on Mill Hill and Newman Signs for its large “Happy Holidays” greeting on its building that features kindergarten students. All of these things help make the community look more festive for the holidays.
